Well, I wasn't paying attention and forgot about my post count. This is technically my 20,005th post, but let's just pretend that it was the 20k post. Am I officially DDO's biggest nerd now?

I think I shall celebrate my nerd tendencies with a glass of champagne. Who will join me?
Anyone have Scotch or Brandy? It's time to have a nerd party now.

Yeah, shake that, yeah yeah.

I officially have the 8th highest post count on DDO. If I wasn't chronically inactive over the last 5 months, I think I would be number one by now. Pretty sure I played too much mafia.

It was probably Freedo, since he was one of the very first members of the site who was always active until only a year ago. So most of his posts came years ago, whereas YYW's and Bsh's posts came pretty recently I imagine

I was guessing so. Besides, the account he had prior to his FREEDO should count. I believe it was something like freedomaniac? Not sure, wasn't around at the time.

Royal was first on the list to hit 20k... Ore_ele was the second I believe

if we talk about total posts all time across all accounts, then Badger and Askbob would likely be in the 20k club too

Polls maybe, I think he pretty much kept out of the forums though, at least from what I can recall.

It was changed in the site's database. Back in the day, usernames could be changed (at request) but the account remain the same. So those two names are actually the same account.

Was this, then, prior to Juggle's purchase of DDO, cause I think I only got here after Juggle had acquired the site. I knew nothing of how it worked prior to that point, only that Phil was in charge

The site was smaller then so it was a rarer thing that an admin would have to do. These days, I don't think the cost-benefit analysis of allowing people to change their usernames favors allowing members to change their names. It's not just the time involved, but keeping track of user names based on "User ID" (everyone has a unique number associated with their account) and not the name itself. I just don't think it would be worthwhile to allow.

I even anticipated this (since I'm asked semi-frequently to change user names) so I had the question included in the site FAQ. The only way to change your name is to create a new account.

I believe it was in the Phil era. So I believe Phil changed the username.

Could you explain Danielle's account to me? In some older forums, I see it says Danielle posted x comment in x forum. But, when someone replied and quoted, it says "theLwerd." How did her username change since it's obviously the same account?

It was changed in the site's database. Back in the day, usernames could be changed (at request) but the account remain the same. So those two names are actually the same account.

Was this, then, prior to Juggle's purchase of DDO, cause I think I only got here after Juggle had acquired the site. I knew nothing of how it worked prior to that point, only that Phil was in charge

What is Phil's account? Is it really just "Phil"?

I believe it was in the Phil era. So I believe Phil changed the username.

Im surprised he doesnt have more posts than he does actually. For someone who ran the damn site at one point, youd have thought he would have at least posted in the forums more than 30 times....

Ah, okay. Why was the option (to change usernames) cast aside?

The site was smaller then so it was a rarer thing that an admin would have to do. These days, I don't think the cost-benefit analysis of allowing people to change their usernames favors allowing members to change their names. It's not just the time involved, but keeping track of user names based on "User ID" (everyone has a unique number associated with their account) and not the name itself. I just don't think it would be worthwhile to allow.

I even anticipated this (since I'm asked semi-frequently to change user names) so I had the question included in the site FAQ. The only way to change your name is to create a new account.

I see, thanks! Also, one more question lol... was Phil the only moderator prior to you?

Actually no wait, it might have been Danielle. Cause she had another account for a while that she posted on at least 3k times before it was shut down, but im not completely sure

Royal paladin was the first to enter 20k if memory serves me. Also danielle just changed her username (she's the only one in debate.org history to have convinced juggle to do it).
